of ukraine. "the washington post" quotes him saying he's embarrassed that germany's failure of leadership. he's already made clear that's how he feels about the obama administration refusal to provide defensive weapons. the u.n. security council held its 13th emergency session on the crisis. this one called by russia, which blames the violence on kiev and its western enablers. >>> up next, the new jobs numbers and what they tell us. fox 45 in baltimore with clean up following the collapse of a sidewalk and retaining wall wednesday after it came down after heavy rains over the past 24 hours. take a look at that. >>> fox 31 in louisville with preparations for saturday's 140th kentucky derby. about the timers on the runs for the roses will be getting a little less back if they win this year. this is a live look at new york from fox 5, the big story there ton, a subway derailment in queens that sent four people to the hospital with very serious injuries. six subway cars of a manhattan brooklyn bound express train went off the tracks this morning but remained upright. that's outside the beltway. w

that killed four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya. general lovell was in germany awaiting orders to strike at the terrorists, orders that never came. >> what we did know quite early on is that this was a hostile action. this was no demonstration gone terribly awry. to the point of what happened, the facts led to the conclusion of a terrorist attack. the afri-con j 2 was focused on attribution. the attacks became attributable very soon after the event. >> so that means the u.s. military, the cia on the ground in libya, and pretty much everyone else directly involved with the benghazi attack knew it was not a spontaneous demonstration within hours. yet, as we proved yesterday, the obama administration created a fiction that the attack was a reaction to an anti-muslim videotape. the cover was blown off that deception this week when a memo by white house advisor ben rhodes was released through the freedom of information act. the memo clearly says that ambassador susan rice was prepped to tell the world on television that a videotape incited the murders in benghazi. incredibly,
, spain, and germany. and if we didn 't, we should have. and one take aways from this, is we need to eva evaluate our abiy to respond to a crisis anywhere in the world on short notice. a lot of people say this is about sticking it to the white house, or hillary clinton. no this is investigation, also serves to make sure that men and women who serve in our dip that diplomatic corps is feel seiche, like they have washington d.c. behind home, when they are out and hostile territory risking their lives for american interests. lou: congressman and congresswoman thank you so much. >> thank you, lou. >> absolutely. lou: time for a look at last night's on-line poll results. would you be more or less likely to vote for a former president's family memr. 87% said no. remember national average in most recent polling was 70% saying no this audience voted 87%. 13% of you said, well why not. i guess. at least you said yes. vote tonight, as we sort of try tto narrow in on this, do you believe jeb bush and hillary clinton will face each other in the presidential general election in 2 2016? cast your vote
in germany, they knew there was no connection to a protest or an internet video. >> it was early on in the evening of september 11th. >> before 3:15 a.m. >> absolutely. >> within hours, sources tell fox a target list was assembled and lovell testified a terrorist group with known ties to al qaeda was blamed. >> it was -- we felt it was -- >> lovell's testimony is consistent with the september 12th e-mail from state department official beth jones to secretary of state hillary clinton's closest aides, including sheryl mills, that the libyan ambassador was told -- was responsible. what's been overlooked is hours later on 10:00 p.m. september 11th even before the attack was over mrs. clinton sent out a press release directly linking the video to the benghazi violence. while mrs. clinton waes statement was out of sync with the intelligence it was reinforced three daze later by the ben rhodes e-mail which critics say intended to shape the public discussion of a terrorist attack. lovell testified that the state department did not respond quickly that night. >> it's not what they did in

: the general was in stuttgart, germany on the night of the attack. what he was able to see in realtime was the message traffic from libya to washington. we expect them to testify there was nothing that message traffic about a protest and nothing about the video. let's listen to congressman jason chaffetz who gave as you present violate yesterday. >> they took a country in libya and turned it into a failed state. one of the people that will be in that room is somebody who is in charge of a lot of the intelligence that they were gleaning in libya. we are going to talk about libya, where it's going, how it's become that failed state. >> reporter: if he testifies he saw nothing in the message traffic about a protest or video that will be significant. as part of our ongoing reporting at fox news we referred to a report september 17, our sources on the ground in libya also said there was no protest and fox received considerable pushback for that reporting. bill: i see darrell is a gaveling the hearing to an opening. let's rinse as this hearing begins. >> ... successes and failures of u.s. in
a lot of energy, germany, angela merkel one of her big problems is that her country really likes the energy coming out of russia. >> that's true. it's up to the united states and the west. we have plenty of energy resources. all we have to do is start using them intelligently. and reduce the dependency of western europe on russian gas. >> see, i see it as even a larger issue in that, you know, while all the focus is on ukraine and what he is doing there is that last year when president obama drew the red line with syria and that back fired and he sort of outsourced and ling the chemical weapons in syria to putin, putin then was supposedly going to help us. now we hear that there is chlorine gas used about a month ago against civilians. it sounds like either we are foolish or there has been some double dealing or whatever. i see that sort of inroads in syria and a bigger problem for israel and sort of expanding in the region. that's what i see is even a larger issue. >> it's even bigger thansrki that in my view. the problem is you you know you can -- if you go back through frankl

growing up in america, growing up in the shadow of world war ii, germany, and i think he wanted to live a big american life after being in this divided, still divided country, and you think about how germany was led into world war ii. they were given stories. they were given a story about their ultimate fate as a people. they were going to, you know, proclaim a path of glory from their mythical origins and sort of have this revival, and by taking up the entire population in the narrative, this leader, crazy man, hitler, was able to motivate people in a way that their own just raw self-interests couldn't by making them talk to the grand opera. clark fooled me by making me a small town friend of the writer lieutenant of the crazy, ease centric millionaire and he knew he could sweep me up in the narrative, and i was ignoring consistencies along the way in order to live it out, and that was the gene yowrks and that's the yen yows of any great ma -- manipulator, to give you a narrative for the actions dm which you preserve at the cost of the ugly truth. >> walter's book is good about that de
quickly. you see some of the european economies are very tied to guest problems. germany has a pipeline underneath the baltics to connect directly to russia. i think that is one of the reasons you will see germany they do getnt -- their money from -- 40% of their gas from russia. the u.s. and russian economy is not nearly as integrated. there is certainly a love for he that it can cause us and european allies a lot of .inancial distress host: are we developing the infrastructure -- guest: i believe there are five or six lng terminal points. only one of those in louisiana is currently under construction. we are a long ways out from making the u.s. export industry to where we can help our allies in europe. opened a have recently liquefied terminal. we are equal to get fish eager get ---- we are eager to a lot of them are buying gas from russians. all of these countries are coming to us and saying, look, we are interested in buying energy resources but the problem is we are at least 10 years out from being able to fulfill the requests. host: we are talking with hannah thoburn from the fore
